Northern Ireland’s leading homecare provider Connected Health has partnered with Clonard Credit Union to give all employees the opportunity to open accounts regardless of where they live.

Clonard Credit Union is one of Northern Ireland’s largest credit unions, with branches across Antrim and North Down.

As part of the new partnership, all Connected Health employees can sign up with an initial deposit of as little as £2, as well as having the opportunity of opening accounts for their children with deposits of as low as £1. And for each child account opened, CCU will provide a gift deposit of £5.

Claire Adams, Operational Manager for Private Care at Connected Health, said: “This partnership encourages our people to save regularly and avail of loans should the need arise. We believe in encouraging the next generation to save too and for every new child account opened the Credit Union will give them a £5 deposit too.”
